A Little Garland
Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink this week is all about making garland for your cards from dies. I don't have any PTI dies but I did use their wonderful white card stock as my card base. I pulled out the crimper and dusted it off to add a little texture to the upper panel. This was quite a fun technique and I have another card in Spanish (Thinking of You) to take to the gift shop.
I would like to enter this card into the challenge at Paper and Such. The challenge is Wings and Things. I'm hoping you can see the little 3-D wing on my birdie!!
I think I told you that we had a pretty bad thunder/wind storm come through on Saturday night. Thought I'd show you a picture of a couple of trees it took down at the entrance to our subdivision. Luckily there were no houses near these trees.
We went to one of our favorite restaurants for supper last night and noticed that their sign was gone. We asked the owner if it was damaged in the storm and he said that the sign was found about 18 blocks away in downtown Chapala!
We have some gray clouds this morning but it looks like it is going to clear up. We've plans to have a late lunch with friends at a good restaurant in a nearby village called Viva Mexico. Our friends just returned from a week in Puerto Vallarta and we're eager to hear about all of their adventures!
